Welcome to 2018!! Whether you celebrated the holidays at the beach, with friends, family or as a volunteer, I hope that it was a peaceful and happy time.

With each passing year I am grateful for my family and this year was no exception, but the one thing that touched me most was the realization that my kids are growing up fast. My son will be a senior next year and my daughter will begin her high school experience. As a mother, of course, I still think of them as “little ones” and can’t imagine a time when I will not have them with me. It is at the very least a bittersweet thought, but one I celebrate as I watch them grow up.

As for AACSC, I am thinking about much the same thing. What does the future hold for us, how will we come together to respond to ongoing threats that pervade our industry? The simple solution is to allow builders the opportunity to build, to let supply and demand do the job it is intended to do, and to educate our tenants that regulations and government are not the way to a positive solution. Building takes time and educating our tenants is just one way we can inform them of the unintended consequences that they are not aware of. Until then, AACSC will stay on top of the ongoing issues and just ask for your participation and involvement when called for. Thank you for your membership and keep the calls coming so we can remain informed.

But what is in store for 2018 you might ask. Well, be ready for more education classes and more opportunities to get involved. This is also the best time of year to let us know where and how you would like to connect with AACSC. We have our Ambassadors team, Golf Committee, Education Committee, Social Media team and our Local Legislative team all waiting for new members to join and help AACSC get even more connected within our territory. We are also adding a new location for AACSC meetings in Whittier and continue to meet each month in Redondo Beach so be sure to check our weekly newsletter, The Beacon, for all the latest news.

We hope that you will join us this year at the Virginia Country Club on January 26 for our Annual Installation for our 2018 Board of Directors and President, Michael Pollack. This must-attend event is a great opportunity to have a wonderful night out at a beautiful location—call Jeannie in our office for more information and to make your reservations.

Finally, I want to thank my staff and partners whom you speak to whenever you call AACSC: Donna, Terri, Tom, Rachael, Jeannie, Sophia, Brenda and Oliver. Every single one of them is dedicated to helping you get the answers you need for your business. We hope you are telling all your multifamily friends that AACSC is the only place to join and get involved. See you soon and may your month be filled with joy as we begin a brand new year.
